MicroStation Tip: Keyin to Toggle between AccuDraw and Civil AccuDraw

Written by Mark Templeman – Senior Transportation Designer at JEO Consulting Group, Inc.

At last months Nebraska User Group 2015 spring conference Mark and I were talking about how AccuDraw and Civil AccuDraw do not work well together. Mark thought it would be nice if there was a keyin to disable one while enabling the other. Well, with some searching in Help and Customization Mark came up with a keyin that works no matter which one is activated.

The keyin is simply “accudraw activate;civilcoord toggle” and it works like a champ. Put this keyin on a function key and see how easy it is to use.

Keyin for Civil AccuDraw

Nice work, Mark!
